It has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with a steam shower and very large bath!) and a guest toilet, a well equiped modern kitchen/diner with all appliances and utility room. There is a TV room with a plasma screen and home cinema with many DVD's for adults and children to watch. There is also a double reception room with a music system and a piano. There are 2 high speed computers, with broadband connection to the internet and Wireless connection.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5. Graham is a full-time lawyer and Angie is a full time mother and part-time lawyer. We have three well behaved children (2 boys, Elliot and Ezra aged 15 and 12, and a girl, Eva aged 9) so the house is child friendly and there are plenty of toys (and a PS3 with many games to try out!) and musical instruments for visiting children to play with. We have had many sucessful exchanges in the past. We are respectiveful of other people's property and would ask others to be respectful of our home. We enjoy travelling. We are open to suggestions and are up for adventure.

    We have a cleaner who will clean the property at the beginning and the end of the exchange and we would expect the same arrangement with the exchange property.

    Please note: As we have been to France many times, we are not looking to exchange to France at the moment. Also we are only interested in an exchanging with a property of a similar size to our home.

Kings Cross and St Pancreas mainline stations are approx 1 mile away where there are trains to the North and Scotland, and Paris (only 2 hours 15 mins away), and local services e.g Brighton (1hour). Approx distances to London's main attractions -Regents Park/Madam Tussauds/London Zoo 2 miles, Camden Market 1 mile, Tate Modern/South Bank 4 miles, Leicester Square 4 miles, Houses of Parliament/Trafalgar Square 4 miles, Hampstead Heath 3 miles, Covent Garden 3 miles. These are all easily accessible by tube, bus or taxis'. Oxford circus is only 4 stops away on the tube.
